    G’dayo! Ni hao! Manahoana! Hola!

    Greetings from Australia, China, Mexico and Madagascar. The art from these countries will be the focus of this summer’s Art Around the World Summer Camp at Creative Clay. The 8-week camp for kids of all abilities ages 6 to 12 will highlight art, culture and customs from these diverse areas of the world.

    Camp begins June 3 and continues through July 26, Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Campers will enjoy a teacher/student ratio of 1:6. Each week culminates in a Friday afternoon for parents and friends in Creative Clay’s music studio.

    This is the 11th year Creative Clay will offer Art Around the World, the Bay area’s only inclusive summer art camp for children. Children of different abilities share a classroom and share the experience of creating art together, versus a traditional school setting where students are often separated due to neuro differences. Unique to this camp is the opportunity for each camper to create a camp T-shirt. Campers submit their portrait, and Big Frog Custom T-Shirts uses all images to create a memento for campers.

    The cost to attend Art Around the World is $150.00 per week, and scholarships are available for those who qualify. Parents and caregivers also get a summer break from lunch prep thanks to free lunches provided daily by the Pinellas County School System.

  • Call to Artists: Sculpture on the Lawn
    April 1, 2019
    Deadline: July 1

    Artists are invited to submit work – existing or conceptual – for the 5th annual Sculpture on the Lawn exhibition, an outdoor display at the entrance to the Orange County Administration Center (201 S. Rosalind Ave.) in the heart of downtown Orlando, where works are visible to approximately 10,000 people daily.

    Sculpture on the Lawn is open to experienced professional sculptors as well as students and emerging artists who specialize in the design, construction and installation of outdoor sculptures. Up to three sculptures will be selected for display from October 2019 to September 2020. One of the sculptures will be selected from a student or emerging artist, if suitable.

    Selection Criteria: The three main considerations are creativity, site appropriateness and durability. Images of finished works and conceptual drawings can be submitted. If the proposed project is not a finished work, artists need to provide information to assure the Selection Panel of what it will look like and that it will be completed and installed as designed.

    Artist Responsibilities: Selected artists must transport the artwork to the site on the specified date and install it with minimal assistance, then remove the artwork after the exhibition.

    Sites and Safety: While artistic quality is very important, works will be reviewed for durability, safety and appropriateness to the site. Artworks must be structurally sound and able to withstand a hot, humid outdoor environment with seasonal heavy rains and hurricane-force winds, in a largely unsupervised area that is not protected from weather or curious viewers. Avoiding potential problems such as rust and fading should be considered.

    Installation: Orange County provides 12-by-12-foot concrete pads. Sculptures must be firmly secured to the pads.

    Selection Panel: Members of the Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs Public Art Review Board will make the selections.

    Honorarium: Each artist will be awarded $3,500 as a fee for the annual loan of the artwork and to help offset any necessary transportation, installation and housing costs.

  • Call for Artwork Made of Recycled Materials
    January 15, 2019
    DEADLINE: June 14

    The unpredictability of found objects makes for the perfect opportunity for inspiration, so we’re calling on you to transform trash into treasure for this recycled objects exhibit, Uncontained. Reuse, recycle and reinterpret found materials into an impactful piece of art. Look locally for discarded materials, and use them to invent something new, unique and sustainable.

    Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers is asking artists to make artwork using recycled materials. Only original artwork will be accepted. No giclee or crafts. Categories include both 2D and 3D art. Other media can be used provided at least 75% is comprised of recycled materials.

    Exhibition is July 5-27 at Alliance for the Arts, and juried by Dale Weber.

    Dale only uses discarded materials that are no longer able to serve their original purpose. For this reason, he prefers the term reinvented rather than recycled. In his search for the significant hidden within the insignificant, Dale's work reveals the inner beauty of the overlooked, abandoned, and forgotten.

    The prospectus and an online application can be found at artinlee.org/event/uncontained.
  • Grants for Organizational Development
    November 27, 2018
    South Arts offers a limited number of Professional Development and Artistic Planning grants to nonprofit performing, visual, media, film, multidisciplinary and literary arts presenting organizations in our nine-state region with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

    Funding up to $1,000 is available to support the professional development needs of Southern presenters, programmers and curators, to strengthen program design and increase organizational capacity.

    For the purposes of these guidelines, “presenters” are defined as organizations that present or host guest artists for engagements in their communities.

    These grants are very limited and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so early submission is encouraged. A dollar-for-dollar cash match is a requirement.

    This grant program provides assistance for a wide-range of professional development opportunities supporting resources needed to succeed in the work of presenting. In the past, these grants have been used for:
    • Traveling to see the work of artists being considered for future presentations, or to expand the presenters’ knowledge of an artform
    • Participating in a significant professional development opportunity
    • Hosting an artist planning visit
    South Arts strongly believes professional development for presenters/programmers/curators is integral to success, including traveling to see new works and attending convenings.

    Applications for this Professional Development and Artistic Planning grant program will only be accepted for new opportunities that organizations, under normal circumstances, are unable to attend.

    Consideration will be given to organizations who have experienced an ongoing hardship and have been unable to pursue professional development.

    This funding can support staff’s travel expenses to conferences, festivals, exhibitions, workshops and other professional development opportunities, or artists’ travel expenses for planning meetings with presenting organizations. These grants support travel expenses (for example, lodging and air/ground transportation), admission/registration fees, and other related expenses.

    Details and an online application are available at southarts.org/grants/apply-for-a-grant/presenter-assistance.

    The maximum request is 50% of the writers’ fees, up to a total grant of $2,500. Each writer is required to fully-participate in the reading and educational outreach component.

    Projects must take place between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020.

  • Open Call for Singers - One City Chorus
    September 21, 2018
    St. Petersburg's award-winning One City Chorus was founded with the belief that singing in a group builds community and leads to better understanding.

    We encourage people of all races, cultures, creeds and communities to sing with us. Everyone is welcome - we have no auditions.

    We have a great season planned. We’ll once again be singing songs with themes about social justice, civil rights, and diversity – songs like Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On”, Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground”, “Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”, the Doobie Brothers’ “Takin’ It to the Streets”, Neil Diamond’s “America”, U2’s “In the Name of Love” and other wonderful songs by less-widely-known artists.

    We’ll be singing a concert in the circular Sanctuary of the Unitarian Universalist Church in Clearwater on December 1, and we’ll be singing again at St. Pete’s First Night celebrations on December 31 at the United Methodist Church. On February 17 is our annual concert at the Palladium Theater.

    Rehearsals are every Monday at 7 p.m. at the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American History Museum –2240 9th Ave. S. in St. Petersburg.

    We ask that our singers contribute $20/year to help defray some of our costs. We sing all of our songs “off-book” without sheet music and we have rehearsal recordings of all the parts online. This helps folks who don’t read music well to learn their parts, and it also helps people who have joined us later in the year to catch up.

    For more information, visit our website at onecitychorus.org.
